Piero Piazzi.

International model management company Elite World has appointed Piero Piazzi as Elite Milano’s president and Europe’s business coordinator.

Piazzi’s assignment is aimed at creating synergies and coordinating all the group’s different agencies, which include Elite, The Society Management and Women Management NY and Paris, among others.

The 53-year-old manager has more than three decades of experience in the industry, spending the last 14 years leading model agency Women Milano. Piazzi discovered and launched the careers of fashion models such as Mariacarla Boscono, Naomi Campbell, Carla Bruni, Marpessa and Lea T.

In his new role, he will directly report to Elite World’s co-chief executive officers Paolo Barbieri, who recently succeeded Christophe Chenut, and Chris Gay.

Barbieri praised Piazzi’s international experience and talent scouting expertise, defining these as additional values for Elite and “essential assets which will contribute to further develop our group.”
